codes. if it's not conforming it would have to be renewed. a mere change in copy would no longer be considered a new sign, however change in new copy will still require a permit. stuff is recommending approval with modifications to the proposed ordinance. while the department does realize how we comply, we also believe it could be interpreted too broadly. that it be changed or would require new change. also add in the exception for a change of copy from one sign type to another for example change an identifying sign to a business sign. these i forwarded to you last week. the department has received comments. the department is seeking approval with modifications with how we treat non-compliant signs and helps preserve the in nature of the character and integrity of buildings and would remove unnecessary burdens on business owners and accommodate new tenants. that concludes my presentation. thank you. >> okay. opening it for public comment. former commissioner rob miguel. trisha, alex walker. >> commissioners, ron miguel, first i would like to welcome to the grandparents club. you

of the neighborhood or the changes in the better street plans that are contemplated for those better neighborhoods. this sign, i don't know why we need to create a blanket permission on the planning department and planning commission would advocate that ability to scrutinize each of these signs. downtown san francisco, city bank has been there for a long time. this sign is very different and very loud from the feeling you have along california street and the financial district. why would we want to give up the ability to scrutinize that in a permitting process. here is another example. what used to be holiday in in chinatown, i took a picture of it at night. it's a beautiful pedestrian bridge. it has a lot of detail on it. it's been botched by that hilton sign. again, as the rules are now contemplated would grandfather that sign. in other words we need to opportunity to reel in branding that is at odds with the character of our neighborhoods. i would like to also point out that san francisco beautiful helped pass prop g. we had voter approval but no enforcement on it until we came here and pounded

practically change the design. sometimes there are differences in code that really make that change and it might be to the detriment of how we might see the design. i think it would be useful in your analysis to look at some of those projects and where the code has changed and how that can be impacted in the over all project design. i'm all fore this kind of 60 day window process because i don't particularly find our discussion as particularly robust until they come back for extension but it's worth having a hearing if we choose those projects to review drawings. i recognize the challenges that what they may not -- people might opt in the process without actually being quite building permit ready. that's the challenge we have when people come for a 3 year entitlement. what they may come for a 3 year extension may not manifest when they do build. that's something we should have a whole separate discussion if the issue of design and outcome is changed. it's truly the change when we have extending. >> first i would like to thank staff the changes to the proposal are great. i think it's

a draft policy you can change that. >> i have a couple comments. there is a process that exist today and it works. so regardless of whether or not we adopt this process, project sponsors can always come back and ask for extension. so even if we adopted this and a project didn't opt in they could still come back and ask for an extension with a hearing, correct? then there is a separate conversation about whether or not 3 years is the correct number of years, we are not talking about that today. in january there is a proposal for extension for 6 years. if that is a conversation to have in the future, i would like to see really robust research in terms of data and the process of how the years were determined. so i think we are not quite ready for that conversation yet. i want to reiterate that. so as far as the the tightening of the language it mirrors what they are already doing, it just makes it a little bit more clear that project sponsors don't have an entitlement after 3 years. as for the program i am open to the idea of some sort of stimulus program that present offered by

by using low-cost measures by changing the signal changing to go at fast streets. we would look at coordination. most of the pedestrian injuries took place on those arterial streets. we're loont about $2.1 million a year. i wrote the track books primarily in residential neighborhood. it has to look for projects that has the appealable to reduce the most speeds throughout the city. we have an explanation process where people can apply for traffic coming which are speed bumps in a low cost way. we prioritize those on volumes and we're actually, one of the changes we've done this before is increasing the waiting given to schools in the ranking. so if someone has a school on their streets we're try to include that in the next year. finally, the school track is something we're changing we'd like to have speed bumps or traffic islands that narrow the driven lanes. we'll work with the school coalition and we'll appreciate our feedback on that. so we can streamline our implementation and have walking audits and the school programs have their own process. but the idea here is to have a q

be addendaed. they keep changing their position and changing what they want to do and what, you know, what the requirements are and at no time have they made any decision at the library commission stating that the example that you have is their policy going forward. so basically, as far as the reality goes, they could simply go back tomorrow and change these right back to where they were and very frankly having dealt with mr. herrera for the last two years, and actually having public records withheld from me, had him drag that out for 18 months, finally having to go back to the task force and having them rule it, yes, you did not follow the determination and you still withheld this and we are going to refer to the board of supervisors for action speaks pretty clearly as to his approach to this. he did not like what we had to say. the library commission did not like what we had say. if if they could not shut us up, and i will remind you this was the same library commission where you voted to recommend to the mayor that the president be removed for silenting public comment. well that kind of

[applause] >> a little shorter. thank you very much. it's such a privilege and honor to be here today to talk about this really important subject. adult probation's goal is to break the intergenerational cycle of incarceration. if we do it where we have the greatest risk and opportunity is with this 18-25 transitional age group. adult probation has undergone a transformation over the last three years. we have learned so much, and diag gasone. and the greater partners and others who put this forum together. it's really important

historic buildings on historic structures where we are just changing the signs, but not the font of the sign, just replacing with the same. >> could the city attorney perhaps help phrase this. this is not about historic building but architecturely significant buildings. there is a subtlety in language here and unless somebody makes this motion there is a proper verbiage to what is on this discussion. >> i think i'm a little unclear as to what amendment you are seek ing to make. right now as it's drafted the changes do not apply to article 11. for example girardily, if they wanted to use this revision they would not be able to do so because it is a landmark building. >> but the same adipose goes through with brannan. as an example, if it was, you couldn't change the copy of that sign even though the copy has been changed over the years. >> for the 888 brannan that is not subject to article 1011. >> let's say it was? >> if it was this legislation would not apply and they would not be able to change the copy. the point of us putting in the change that doesn't apply to article 10 o

, supported those compromises. we only had a problem when at the last minute they changed and wanted to leave the kitchen in the existing structure and not put a kitchen in this big structure in the front. it just doesn't make sense to us. so, that's one point. i don't understand the building being in compliance. i suppose that means it's an accessory building. it fits that specification. it seems odd to me. we didn't pursue the demolition after mr. crock decided it was not feasible financially. we didn't push that. there's -- if there is a remodel of the existing proposed, we haven't seen any plans for that. i don't know if any permit has been or application has been made for that. we haven't seen it, or any notifications to the neighbors of any plans. so, we don't know what's going to go on with the existing building. that's it. >> okay. project sponsor, you have a two-minute rebuttal. >>> i would like to address the concern about the relocation of the kitchen. initially in my original plan when i sent out the neighborhood notification, i did have the kitchen relocated in the front building

all get the bulletin that comes out and i saw and read that and i know it was too late to change that we did what we could to get the word out we do want to make sure i think today has been a thoughtful afternoon a lot of excellent suggestions have been made and these points are well taken when we schedule this again we'll make sure it will be available to the industry to all of you before that period of time so some time for thoughtful deliberations in advance. and we'll try to just engage the most thoughtful process we possibly can on this we know it's a very important issue and i believe there's a hearing before the puc a workshop on some of this? >> so on april tenth and 11th the california public utility commission the cpuc is holding a workshop about the regulations that relate to the services we're talking about new online enabled transportation services. they said it would be a 6 months process these workshops on april 10 and 11th will be 930 a.m. each of those mornings on 505 van ness probably go until 430 p.m. is what we're told there should be an agenda coming out a
